The interest expense on the lease liabilities in 2022 amounted to €2.1 million (2021: €2.4 million).

The cost in 2022 of short-term leases for which right-of-use assets have not been recognised amounted to €94 million (2021: €98 million). This largely concerns short-term equipment rental on projects.

The total cash outflow relating to leases amounted to €123 million in 2022 (2021 €125 million). This includes the aforementioned short-term rental of equipment on projects.

The weighted average incremental borrowing rate that has been used in determining the amount of the liability in 2022 is 3% (2021: 3%).
